A confluence of events, including the impending induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, has put Kurt Cobain and Nirvana in the forefront of our pop culture consciousness lately. Susceptible as anyone else, I threw on Nevermind last night and, holy shit, did it sound great. Can you imagine a record like that becoming the biggest thing in the world today? I burned out on listening to it years ago, but now it sounds totally fresh again. Anyway, remaining core Nirvana members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night, talking about how quickly the band got huge, destroying their instruments, as well as what it was like when Paul McCartney joined them in the studio.
R.E.M.‘s Michael Stipe will induct Nirvana into the Hall of Fame tonight. Word is that Joan Jett will be on hand to help them celebrate with a performance. Watch the Tonight Show interview below.
